This season Gyunel showcased her latest couture collection, a vibrant display of 90’s nostalgia and romantic grunge looks. The designer, originally from an artistic background completed her education at Central Saint Martins and London College of Fashion. Gyunel is known for her transitional style of design, using prints created from her oil paintings which are then transformed into fashion looks ready for the catwalk.
This unique application of creativity is merged with elegant craftsmanship and timeless designs. The luxury couture brand was founded in 2005 and has since built a strong international client base working on an appointment-only basis.
The latest SS20 looks reinforce a teenage spirit, exhibiting strong 90s references to punk and grunge which are carried through the collection. The use of royal blue, black and metallic fabrics could be seen alongside a range of silhouettes from full-length gowns, fitted body con dresses and boxy denim jackets. Swarovski embellishments and the use of transparent fabrics like organza gave the range a sassy glamours look. A unique glitzy denim co-ord and a baby pink halter neck bustier dress stood out from the collection, styled with Doc Martins providing a princess rocker vibe to this seasons looks.
Overall Gyunel’s collection was a unique display of couture artistry, combining a range of classic designs and reinforcing the designer's recognisable skills in painting and couture fashion.
